Hazard Communication Training for Employees and Businesses
Hazard communication enables employers to address OSHA requirements, safeguard the environment and keep workers safe when working around chemical hazards.
Better everyday decisions
Hazard communication conveys information about chemical hazards in the workplace so workers can take necessary safety precautions when handling them, storing them and disposing of them.
Hazard Communication covers these topics and more:
- The importance of HazCom programs
- Information about hazardous chemicals in the workplace
- Purpose of Safety Data Sheets and the information they include
- Understanding labels on chemicals
- Nine common pictograms used across workplaces and industries
Benefits of Hazard Communication Training
Workers must be able to identify and understand the potential hazards associated with the chemicals they handle in the workplace. This knowledge can help them take the essential safety measures to protect themselves and their coworkers from accidents and injuries.
When workers are more knowledgeable about chemical hazards, they are better equipped to handle them safely and effectively. With training, they can quickly recognize and take steps to mitigate or eliminate potential hazards before they become serious problems.
Training workers in how to properly handle, store and dispose of hazardous materials can also help minimize the negative impact of these materials on the environment and reduce the risk of potential fines for non-compliance.
Thus, investing in hazard communication training for workers who handle hazardous materials not only protects the health and safety of workers, but also helps prevent environmental damage and ensure regulatory compliance.
How Hazard Communication Training Works
Traliant’s Hazards Communication training is a 30-minute course that covers what hazardous chemicals are and how to understand and use critical information in Safety Data Sheets, pictograms and chemical labeling to keep workers and the people who work around them safe.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard requires employers to provide training to all employees who work near, around and with chemicals. By providing Traliant’s Hazard Communication training in conjunction with chemical hazard specific training, organizations can support their employees, keep them safe and comply with OSHA regulations.
